1) Script Title: Step Carousel Viewer v1.8

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/stepcarousel.htm

3) Describe problem: I am trying to get step carousel to work on a worpress theme. I have it set up to feature the 2 newest blog posts. For some reason it shows the two newest blog posts but they are situated one on top of another. I'm pretty sure its a just a little mistake but I can't figure it out at all. If you go to beautifulremedy.org you can see the problem.

There may be other issues, but your references to the step carousel .js files on your page are broken:


<script type='text/javascript' src='http://beautifulremedy.org/wp-content/themes/YourDesignhere/includes/js/stepcarousel.js?ver=2.9.1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://beautifulremedy.org/wp-content/themes/YourDesignhere/includes/js/stepcarousel-setup.js?ver=2.9.1'></script>


They lead to error pages.

Hmm thats odd. According to my ftp server the file is there. I can transfer it from my web sever to my desktop and then open it just fine. Any ideas why this would be happening?

The issue is simply that the .js files do not exist on your server at the appointed location. As to why this path is incorrect, most likely your Wordpress theme is generating incorrect paths. The following for example is invalid: http://beautifulremedy.org/wp-content/themes/YourDesignhere/includes/js/stepcarousel.js?ver=2.9.1

This plugin was included in a free template from Site5.com.

On my site I am trying to get the carousel to scroll, but it just shows one item. I followed instructions to

1. On the post edit page have a text set for Excerpt field.

2. Set up a custom field called "featured" with value "1".

3. Set up a custom field called "featured_image" and enter the full path to the image you want to be displayed in the in slider. Please rememeber that this image has to be 600px X 337px in size.

...wanting a result like http://wordpress.site5.net/webfolio/

... but getting just one post showing.

I love this plugin and really want it working on my site. Any advice please?

Thanks in advance

svekaria, the carousel seems to be scrolling for me. Or do you mean something else?
